Please forward this invitation to attend Red Grant Regatta, July 12 and 13 at Raritan Yacht Club in Perth Amboy, NJ.
It's a great event, with a great party in a great facility. Sailing conditions in recent years have been fabulous. We had 5 109's last year (with Mad Dogs getting the trophy). To encourage participation, the RC is offering registration at $45.00 for first time participants. RYC does not charge mooring fees to racers. Perth Amboy can be reached by train for convenience of crew attendance. Guaranteed good time. Registration online at www.ryc.org.
|Block Island Race Week 2008
While overall regatta enrollment was down from prior years, you wouldn't have known it by the quality and quantity of racing packed into the week. Regatta hosts Duck Island Yacht Club and Zuse, Inc. ran 11 races over 5 days, including the classic Round the Island Race midweek. Greg Ames and Steve Kenny on GOSSIP held off a late charge from Ted Herlihy (GUT FEELING) to win by one point.
